I was looking for God at my grandmother's house
Underneath the cushions on the couch
I looked all around side to side up and down
That man was no where to be found
So I called my grandmama on the phone
Said old lady you best get home
Cause God ain't where you said he would be
And there's something that I really need to speak to him about immediately
She said boy tell Granny what's wrong is there something I can do
I said big mama now it's a sensitive issue
And Lord knows I don't want to worry you
But I need somebody to talk to

It's done been 26 years 17 days
Been to 5 different prisons got 2 babies on the way
And they say it'll be a waste of time to pray
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway

I done smoked weed with the best of y'all
Shot at all the rest of y'all
My heart hurts like an old man with high cholesterol
The preacher said that I'm the dirtiest dude he ever saw
Shouldn't even be livin'
And he a Christian
Shoulda been dead like 17 times for 17 crimes I committed
Took 'em all to trial and got acquitted
Left wavin' my middle finger in the air whispered in the prosecutor's ear, yeah I did it
I done stole everything from dreams to wedding rings
Auctioned off my soul for material things
But lately its been kinda botherin' me
I guess that turtle always catches up with the rabbit eventually

It's done been 26 years 17 days
Been to 5 different prisons got 2 babies on the way
And they say it'll be a waste of time to pray
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway

It's done been 26 years 17 days
Been to 5 different prisons got 2 babies on the way
And they say it'll be a waste of time to pray
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway
Seeing that I'm going to hell anyway

Somebody loves you baby whoa whoa whoa somebody loves you baby
Somebody loves you baby whoa whoa whoa somebody loves you baby
Somebody loves you baby whoa whoa whoa somebody loves you baby
Somebody loves you baby whoa whoa whoa somebody loves you baby
